On 9 August 2009 Outsight Radio Hours was graced with the presence of Gary Lucas (Gods & Monsters, Fast ânâ Bulbous). We talked about the new album Waxed Oop by Fast 'n' Bulbous which features largely instrumental explorations of the Captain Beefheart songbook. Lucas also generously shares with us details of us association with Captain Beefheart and how that made him early on an evangelist for the Captain. Lucas also gives us an overview of the many projects keeping him busy and reflecting his manifold genius.
On 31-January-2010 Lucas returned to speak of Rishte, his collaboration with English-born Indian vocalist Najma Akhtar. The unique album on World Village Records sprung from Lucas introducing Najma to the rich world of Americaâs Delta blues (Skip James, etc.) and Najma reflecting it back through her own cultural traditions and her ethereal voice.
